The layers of chocolate, marshmallow, and Oreo cookies make this S'mores Oreo Icebox Cake a dessert worth splurging on. This is a delicious cake to bring to summer picnics or barbecues.
It's also no-bake, so it's perfect for those days when it is too hot to even think about baking.
So, I have realized lately that most stores know just how to get consumers to make those extra little purchases. You know the ones, right? The little purchases that you throw into your cart at the very last second.
Magazines are usually the main one that get me every time. I will be standing in the check out line just minding my own business (or scrolling through Instagram), and then I look up and see a new issue with some tantalizing recipe on the front. And before you know it, that magazine and probably 2 others are in my cart.
Target has gotten wise to this little tactic because they also put the newest Oreo cookies at the beginning of the checkout aisles. I'm a sucker for new Oreo flavors, so I always end up buying those too.
The other day I was shopping for some new summer clothes, and I saw that S'mores Oreos are back in the stores. Yay! I love when the Oreo company decides to bring back popular flavors from previous years.
Of course, I'm not surprised they decided to make them again because s'mores anything is super popular in the summer time!
Seeing those made me think of how much I love s'mores. And how I love to turn s'mores into things like Chocolate S'mores Pudding Cake and S'mores Cookie Cups.
Oreo cookies also make me think about icebox cakes. They are one of my favorite things to make with the different flavors of Oreo cookies. This Cherry Oreo Icebox Cake was my most recent creation with the new dark chocolate Oreos.
I actually made this particular Oreo icebox cake a few years ago using the golden Oreos with chocolate cream filling. Those particular Oreos are not available anymore, but the s'mores Oreos look and work just the same.
Ice box cakes are seriously one of the easiest cakes to put together. All you need is some type of cookie and a creamy filling to make the layers of this delicious no bake dessert.
There are so many cookie and filling possibilities for making an icebox cake. These fun desserts also go by the name of dessert lasagna, lush dessert, or dream dessert.
What you need for this Oreo S'mores Icebox Cake:
- S'mores Oreos - you will need 2 packages in order to have enough for the layers
- Cream Cheese
- Marshmallow Cream
- Cool Whip
- Hershey's Chocolate Candy Bars
- Marshmallow Bits
The layers of Oreos and marshmallow cheesecake topped with chocolate chunks and mini marshmallows take this cake over the top! This dessert rocked my socks off! I love it when a dessert comes together and is even better than what I imagined.
Tips for making a S'mores Oreo Icebox Cake:
Make sure your cream cheese is softened before you beat it. This just makes it easier to mix it with the marshmallow cream. Also, make sure you are using a spatula to push the mixture down from the sides of the bowl as it mixes.
Fold in the container of Cool Whip gently with a spatula. If you prefer homemade whipped cream, this will work too. Beat 1 ½ cups of heavy whipping cream and 6 Tablespoons powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Use this in place of the Cool Whip.
Spread 2 Tablespoons of the filling in the bottom of an 8 inch pan. This will keep the cookies from sticking to the bottom later.
Dip the cookies in milk one at a time and place them in the pan. Spread half of the cheesecake filling on top of the cookies. Repeat the layers and refrigerate the cake.
Pro Tip: Make sure to refrigerate the Oreo icebox cake for at least 4 hours. This gives the cookies time to soften up and become like a cake layer.
Add chopped candy bars and mini marshmallows to the top right before serving.

Oh my goodness I need this in my life ASAP! Talk about the perfect summer cake!
This is just perfect for those upcoming Summer birthdays!
This cake is heavenly! My girls love it.
Such a fantastic dessert! My kids polished this off quick!
What a decadent dessert! This looks like something straight from a bakery window!
I can't find the golden Oreos with chocolate creme. Do you think I could layer the golden with the chocolate creme? Would love this for cub scouts.
Yes, I would do a layer of golden Oreos, then a layer of the chocolate for the second layer. I hope you enjoy it. You can also look for the golden Oreos with chocolate cream on amazon. I found mine at Walmart, and I have seen them in Target.
I decided last night to go with the two kids of Oreos. I put the chocolate crème ones on the bottom & doubled the recipe. It was a big hit at the cub scout summer picnic today. Just a little bit was left which my kids ate the second we got home.
I can't get enough Smores! Love that this uses real marshmallow cream and hershey's chocolate.
Have you tried the Smores Oreos yet? I bet they'd go great in here as well!
I found the S'mores Oreos over the weekend, and yup, those are all kind of good!!!

Oh my gosh. I seriously want to have one of those for breakfast...and then I better bring the rest into work so I don't polish the whole thing off myself!
I see nothing wrong with this as breakfast 😉 But yes, sharing is probably best with this dessert...I couldn't stop eating slivers while it was in my fridge!

I seriously need to get on the icebox cake bandwagon. I've never made one before and this one looks like the perfect way to start!
Never made an icebox cake? What are you waiting for? Do it, do it, do it!!! 🙂
Holy yum! This cake looks amazing. Love the oreo/s'more combo.
Icebox cakes are amazing. They look so impressive with all the layers, yet are so quick and easy to put together. At some point, there will be hot weather (I think) and no-bake deliciousness will be a dessert requirement! Marshmallow cheesecake?! This recipe really should include extra ingredients to allow for some serious pre-assembly sampling! 😉
LOL! Yes, extra ingredients are sort of necessary...I was sampling mine as I put it together 🙂

Eeks hope the weather levels off for you soon. It got pretty chilly here too. Thinking warm thoughts and about campfire treats is the perfect solution. This icebox cake looks gorgeous, Jocelyn! Love the s'mores and oreo combo!
For now the warm weather is back...hopefully it stays! S'mores and Oreos are such an awesome pair!
This icebox cake looks absolutely delicious!!!
Thank you 🙂 It was a fun one to create!
